Genovese international freight forwarder Priano Marchelli, specialized in the cruise and marine industry, acquired Priano Aerostream in Miami and renamed it Priano Marchelli USA.

Carlo Battiston will serve as general manager, supported by Maria Lugo, head of operations; Roy Applegate, head of sales, and a team of 15 other professionals.

Priano Marchelli CEO Andrea Giachero said the company is sending a strong signal to the market, despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a challenging time when many others have changed strategies and objectives, Priano Marchelli is proud that its teams in Genoa and Miami have stayed the course and are ready to support the industry's relaunch.

Continuous evolution, long history and stability

With prudent and pragmatic management that bases its success on technology and a strong focus on its employees, a 'global and dynamic company is born,' Giachero said, able to respond to the international market by continuous evolution with its roots in the long history and stability of Priano Marchelli.

The company believes in treating customers as partners, a philosophy Giachero said will apply in the US branch as it does in the Italy headquarters.  

Giachero and brother Claudio thanked Priano Aerostream's Dinter brothers and their team for making it possible to establish Priano Marchelli USA with the organization, structure and licenses necessary to meet all logistics needs and expectations.
